Background: I'm writing my master's degree dissertation on electrical engineering, related do electroporation, and I'm trying to define broad meanings for some possible approaches to the electroporation modelling (so I can create subsections with those names): here are the sentences that define them:
Theories of electroporation fall into two broad categories: (I) those based on the pore-formation and breakdown voltage modelling and (II) those that describe the electrical changes after the electroporation aiming to obtain the permeabilization state obtained.
So, the first one tries to model the process with more detail, like molecular dynamics in some cases (would that be phenomenological?). And the second one will model the broader view of the process, not being interested of what actually changed on the structure of the electroporated cells, just what this changes reflects electrically.
I am not sure if you guys can help me out or either if this is the right place to ask that. But thanks in advance anyways.
Note: I'm actually not writing the document in English, I'm not from an English speaking country (as you might notice already), but I'll translate what I get here, if I can.
The answer I am seeking is not electroporation-related at all, it's more general, like: which terms defines the method of study that concentrates on modeling (I) how the phenomena occurs and (II) how that phenomena reflects macroscopically on its environment.
